Did they include Labour’s leaders office?

The CTU is running a campaign about “vulnerable workers”, or “insecure work” as they like to call it. They have released a report suggesting that 30% on New Zealand’s workforce is “insecure”…presumably that includes all the staff in David Cunliffe’s office who got the arse when he took over?

I hope the PSA is battling hard for those “insecure workers”.

The CTU releases its report into insecure work, Under Pressure: Insecure Work in New Zealand at its Biennial Conference ? Fairness at Work, held today in Wellington. CTU President, Helen Kelly says ?whether we call it casualisation, precarious work, temporary, or non-standard work ? it means that workers have worse conditions, less security, less say and are more vulnerable. That may suit the boss ? but it is unfair and does not work for workers.??

?Our report shows that at least 30% of New Zealand?s workers ? over 635,000 people including 192,000 temporary workers ? are in insecure work. We believe it may well cover 50% of the workforce because we know that 95,000 workers have no usual work time, 61,000 workers have no written employment agreement, 573,000 workers earn less than the Living Wage and almost a quarter of a million Kiwi workers say they have experienced discrimination, harassment or bullying at work. Some of these will add to the 30% level.?

What I want to know about all this living wage stuff that is being pushed…is did the GReen party pay the living wage to all the people collecting signatures for their petition?
